But I want to run GDB from within Emacs :-(

I did for example ...

I thought you meant the set new-console command.

What I want is simple: Start a graphical Emacs session, within that
session do M-x gdb in an Emacs source directory, and then run -Q -nw.
What am I missing to make such a simple scenario work?  Did anyone on
GNU/Linux ever try that?
